Deadmau5 – Strobe (Ableton and E-SX live set with iPad, Launchpad and SH-201)

This is Strobe, the ending track of Deadmau5’s “For Lack Of A Better Name”. One of the best song I’ve ever heard 🙂

It’s been a long time since I wanted to cover it but I never took the time to think it through … Until now !

I wanted to do something with the ESX because I really love to play live on this piece of gear so I tried to sync it with Ableton and fortunatly, it worked pretty well ! So the parts are written down on the electribe and routed to Ableton whose playing the sounds (except for the intro, it’s written directly on Ableton).

The filming process took me a long time because as you may see, I was pretty stressed out every time I tried to record it … Playing this 10 minute song without any mistake IS hard !
For those who ask : the app on the iPad is called touchAble, please support them, they’re doing a great job !
